We can look at the struggles in our life and think to ourselves that we are alone. This has been and continues to be a constant struggle in humanity. No matter how many people are around us, we feel this overwhelming sense of loneliness. This isn’t God’s plan for us though. We were created for relationship with Him and when we follow Jesus that relationship is restored to what God had intended. He never intended that we feel alone. All throughout the Bible God tells us that He is with us.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
We have the reassurance that God is with us, that we don’t have to worry or fear. Our God cares for us and wants to guide us in righteousness. We no longer have to try and get through life by our own strength because we know that God will uphold us.
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? 1 Corinthians 3:16
We as believers are the temple of God’s presence. No longer do we go to a temple, building or location to seek God’s presence because the Holy Spirit dwells within us. Knowing this gives us the confidence to be able to walk in joy knowing God’s love for us. We have no need to fret because the Living God lives in us and loves us more than we could ever fathom.
